    I have a folder on my hard drive that contains a VIDEO_TS folder full of IFO, VUP, AND VOB files.
    what do i do now to make them burnable to a dvd?
    i have nero 6, dvd shrink, damon tools, and dvd decrypter.
    any ideas?

    Hi,

    Just use Nero to burn the VIDEO_TS folder (yes, the folder and not just the contents) to a blank disc :)

    Open Nero Burning ROM and in the "New Compilation" window choose "DVD" from the drop down at the top left then select the "DVD-Video" option from the column on the left. Now click the "New" button at the top right.

    When the new window opens, find your VIDEO_TS folder through the file browser on the right, drag it over to the VIDEO_TS icon on the left and you should be set to burn :)

    I have burning enabled with nero.
    when I add my VIDEO_TS folder that contains all the VOP,IFO,AND VUB files I get a warning box that says: you have added DVD video content to a compilation type that will not result in a DVD compliant disc. to create discs playable in standalone DVD video players please use the DVD video compilation type.
    I don't understand why I have no problems burning one disc to another, but to burn files to disc is just baffling me!
    thank you!

    Then you don't need to load any files :)

    When you click "backup!" ... change the target destination to your burner.

    now say i want to simply play my dvd from the hard drive, completely bypassing the whole burning operation, and my dvd is contained in the video_ts directory (vob,bup files). how would i go about doing this? I've tried windvd but it freezes and skips like mad...wth?????

    i just tried that player and it does the same thing: i select the dvd folder, it inserts all the vob files and when i play them there is a blank screen and there is extremely choppy audio. do you think my files are currupted? I used my xbox to rip the dvd to hdd.

    Huh?? I've never tried. You know you can get a very good dvd-rom for $30.

    I was hoping I wouldnt have to install a dvd-decrypter, and simply use my xbox to rip my dvds to hard disk, as I have successfully done in the past with all my xbox games (which of course are dvds also). Apperantly my xbox isnt ripping the files correctly. Which decrypter would you recommend I try? I have an irritating feeling its my ati 9000 (integrated). One thing i should note is that my laptop plays dvds perfectly when read from my dvd drive.

    Hi,

    DVD Decrypter should suit your purposes nicely :)
